Re: Has anyone used the Merina Coil? What are its side effects like?
I had a Mirena coil fitted when I was 45 (due to very heavy and frequent periods). It stayed in for five years and I had no problems whatsoever. The fact that your periods more or less disappear is the very best side effect!
Obviously, it isn't suitable for everyone, but I can only recommend it. I think you should, too!
If it doesn't suit you, the removal of it is far more comfortable than the fitting.
